The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline
The Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School Students’ Performance in Physics in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria was investigated in this study. The study adopted a survey research design of the ex-post facto type. The sample comprised 120 senior secondary school II Physics students drawn from the six secondary schools in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti state. The instruments used for the study was questionnaire and past academic performance in Physics of the students involved in the study. Two research hypotheses were generated and analysed in the study using Pearson’s Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistical analysis. Among others, the study revealed that: students‘ variables (study habit, attitude to and interest of students in Physics) are better predictors of students’ performance in Physics, while student gender has no influence on students academic performance (is a poor predictor).
Cattle suffering with plastic foreign body syndrome were treated surgically by rumenotomy. The pre-operative and 12 th day post operative blood and serum biochemical were recorded and compared with normal healthy cattle. Preoperatively decrease in haemoglobin, packed cell volume and total erythrocyte count was observed which was gradually increased and came to near normal state on 12 th post-operative day. There was leucocytosis, neutrophilia and corresponding lymphopenia observed in animals during pre-operative phase. The glucose, serum creatinine, serum albumin and calcium levels were found to be at lower level and total proteins, blood urea nitrogen and phosphorus at higher level in pre-operative period when compared to normal cattle. This may be due to low intake of food and water and also inflammatory condition in body due to presence of plastic foreign body.
The study on patient satisfaction at priyadarshini dental college and hospital are conducted to measure the level of satisfaction as well quality of dental care provided .the total 100 randomly patients were surveyed .a questionnaire of 22 question were used to collect the information from the patients, most of patients were satisfied with the quality of care they received but some were dissatisfied due to the unable to understand explanation of treatment option provided by dental students and the long waiting time for the treatment, patient satisfaction is key determinant of quality of care.
The study aimed to discover answers pertaining to process of intervention and perception based upon a 36 item questionnaire put forth to 40 parents having children with multiple disabilities. Children were in the mean of 9.9 years and attended NIEPMD for 2.18 years; most frequent (48%) associated conditions were Cerebral Palsy along with mental retardation. The mean age of suspicion by parents was at 24.2months followed by doctor visit by 27.2 months and initiation of rehabilitation by 56.14 months. The core concern for 80% parents was to develop motor and speech skills, although the majority (55%) had neglected speech therapy. Clients preferred a transdisclipinary approach (68%) over the present multidisciplinary approach. Acceptance of the child’s condition is a crucial, 56% parents took an average of 8.03years to accept their child’s disability followed by 28% who were in the bargaining stage.
Tukra is one of the major problem in mulberry growing areas and it is caused by pink mealy bug Maconellicoccus hirsutus which affect both the quality and yield of mulberry leaf. In general the tukra- diseased leaves showed high moisture content compared to normal healthy leaves. A preliminary attempt has been made to know the effect of plant extracts of natural pesticide origin on moisture content, loss and retention capacity of tukra affected mulberry leaves. The seed kernel and leaf extracts of Azadirachta indica, Pongamia pinnata, Madhuca longifolia and only leaf extracts of Lantana camara, Adathoda vasica were directly used as a foliar spray on M-5 mulberry variety under field conditions. The results revealed that the tukra affected leaves showed high moisture content (75.92%) compared to normal healthy leaves (71.32%). The moisture content was more in NSKE @ 4% (73.83%) PSKE @ 4% (73.80%), MSKE @ 4% (73.30%), and lowest was recorded from MSKE @ 2% (71.76%)
Guava leaves have been used to treat cough and pulmonary diseases; they have also served as anti inflammatory and haemostatic agent in china. This work is therefore aimed at investigating the effects of guava leaf extract on the liver enzymes of adult wistar rats. Twenty apparently healthy wistar rats were used for this study. They were allocated into four groups (A, B, C & D) of five animals each. Group A served as the control and was orally administered with 0.5ml of distilled water; the experimental groups B, C, & D were orally administered 250mg/kg, 500mg/kg and 750mg/kg of guava leaf extract respectively for fourteen days. Twenty four hours after the last administration, the animals were dissected. Blood for serum preparation were collected through cardiac puncture. The activities of serum aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphotase (ALP) were determined using randox kit method.
This study was conducted with the aim of investigating how access control would secure customer information in Kenya. This study was guided by the set out objectives: first to determine how data control mechanisms enhance security access, secondly to investigate the security issues on access of customer information and thirdly to develop Secure Data Access Control (SEDAC) model. In achieving these objectives a self administered questionnaire was developed and distributed to randomly selected respondents. The findings of the study were analyzed using SPSS. The Security Data Access Control (SEDAC) model was developed for and recommended for adoption by the end users as a guide to enlighten the novice worker who constitutes a large number of the work force.
Leadership style is phenomenon which affects the productivity and quality nursing care. There is a lack of research studies in this area in Sri Lanka. The aim of this study was to examine the nurses’ perception about their nurse managers’ leadership style. The study sample comprised 160 nurses using simple random sampling. The research instruments were Demographic Data Recording Form and the Perceived Leadership Form Questionnaire. The reliability coefficient of the Perceived Leadership Form Questionnaire was 0.86 and the content validity index of was .91. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Nurses perceived their managers’ leadership style as transformational (Mean = 3.35, SD =0.64), and transactional leadership as (Mean = 3.25, SD =0.45). The results of the study showed that nurses perceived their managers’ leadership style as transformational. The study provides the opportunity for nurse managers to look into their nursing staff by examining
